Diabetes is a global health crisis with over 537 million people impacted by the disease worldwide. India accounts for 1 in 7 of all adults living with diabetes in the world. According to studies conducted by IDF (International Diabetes Federation), over 1 in 2 (51.2%) adults living with diabetes in South East Asia are undiagnosed. In fact, in India alone, nearly 53.1 percent of people with diabetes remain unaware of their diabetes status. Many who have been diagnosed are unable to obtain adequate treatment of their diabetes and could be at risk for developing diabetes related complications.

Regular self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG)

An important tool in the management of diabetes for many patients is regular self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG). SMBG is the process of checking blood glucose levels at regular intervals to support the effective management of diabetes. This can be done easily by any individual by using a blood glucose meter. One can test first thing in the morning (fasting glucose), around meals, and at any time to monitor the impact of exercise, stress, and medication or other conditions on the blood glucose. SMBG is thus an important tool in addition to medication, diet and exercise to help individuals keep their blood glucose readings within an acceptable range. This may reduce the onset and progression of long-term complications associated with diabetes.

Blood Glucose Meters allow for accessible and regular self-monitoring of blood glucose. With an array of glucose meter brands available in the market, it might be difficult to choose the right brand. Always consult with your healthcare provider and seek advice on choosing a trustworthy blood glucose meter.
